I have eaten here several times over the past couple of years and must say I have always enjoyed my meal. The menu is full, varied, and changes fairly frequently. One never tires of the menu. The décor is cozy. inviting, and the staff is like family, in a good way of course. Make a reservation to assure you get... More

I was expecting better food and nicer decor at this restaurant. It was average, nothing special. Decoration was tacky and food rather tasteless. Looks like they are trying but they need to try harder

Great place except I will usually avoid during the busiest lunch hour as have experienced long waits and even one occasion where our order never even made it to the kitchen they were so busy!

Everything about this place was great, service, atmosphere, food portions, and the food itself. The servers were the sweetest I've ever met -- I went solo and they kept making sure I was okay haha, but I asked to tip on a separate card (which they couldn't do) so she told me to get her next time. Sweet! I got... More

We were happy to find the Olive Tree in Sydney. The Trip Advisor reviews are spot on: cozy atmosphere, friendly proprietors, large portions, tasty food. This was the dining highlight of our two days in Sydney. I'm sure if we stayed longer we would have eaten here again. It's definitely a good idea to make a reservation. We called an... More

The place is small and a little crowded. The food was excellent, I had the fish & chips, the batter was so thin I ate the batter , which I find... More
